Peter Fairs has been growing quinoa on his farm in Essex for over 20 years but has only identified and selected "sweet" varieties for human consumption in the last few years.

Rinse, cover with 1 and a half to 2 parts water or stock for each 1 part quinoa, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes. Add more water if necessary. The grains will swell to 3 to 4 times their original size and become translucent.
